Flyers Didn’t Get Any Breaks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ed Moran of the Philadelphia Daily News,

It also could be argued that the Montreal Canadiens got a lot of help from the officiating with two calls that, in the end, negated an effort that should have put the Flyers ahead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Instead, a borderline, last- minute kneeing call and a resulting power-play goal by Alex Kovalev that tied the game and a ruling on a second-period Kovalev goal that appeared to have been scored with a high stick resulted in a 4-3 Montreal win in overtime last night in the Bell Centre.

Tom Kostopoulos got a second chance at his own rebound and scored the game-winner 48 second into overtime, putting the Canadiens up, 1-0, in the best-of-seven series that resumes tomorrow night in Montreal.

“We certainly didn’t get any breaks,” coach John Stevens said when asked how he felt about the calls.

You Want Numbers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Greg Wyshynski at Yahoo,

Recently, I spoke with Justin Kubatko, Vice President of Sports Reference LLC and the person in charge of creating Hockey-Reference.com. “I’m a hockey fan. I wouldn’t say I’m a die-hard hockey fan, but I grew up near Pittsburgh. When the Penguins won those back-to-back Cups in the’90s, I remember those well,” said Kubatko, 36, who now lives in Columbus. He said Sports Reference LLC had planned on creating a hockey site for years, but needed “a good data set and a license for the data” before starting up

Do you really think Osgood will steal any games from us? NO.  Are you scared Theo will?  YES!

How’d that work out for you?

What a Difference a Year Makes

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From James Duthie at The Good, The Bad and The Duthie:

Exactly one year ago, Jeremy Roenick strolled into our studio for the start of the second round of the 2007 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Not surprisingly, it was a Rock Star entrance.  He was late (plane’s fault), arriving just as our first intermission was beginning.  He had not rehearsed, not been given a single tip on which camera to look at, how long to talk for, or how to deal with a producer yapping in his ear.

Of course, none of that mattered.  The only thing Roenick does better than play hockey is…talk.  He was more comfortable in the first 30 seconds on television than some are after 10 years in the business.  He said smart things, dumb things, outrageous things.  He waved his arms madly in the air like he was in the middle of a dance floor whenever we first came live to studio.

Groin Problem Sidelines Forsberg

via All Things Avs,

Another out of the blue groin pull for Foppa. Won’t play tonight.

Unbelievable. There’s always something. What a blow to the Avalanche that is.

Total series killer. Wings in four or five now.

Oh No He Din’t….It’s a Game 1 Live Blog

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Once again, for the second time the last three games, I’ll be missing the live blog tonite, DVRing the game and sitting through an official
function trying not to soil the cloth of our nation.  I’ll be receiving your comments and emails throughout and won’t read a single one.  Don’t
try to send me notes and trick me either, the ones titled, “Your House Is On Fire”.  You almost got me last time but it didn’t work.

Caught Moonlighting

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Alanah McGinley at Yahoo,

I’m not sure I’m the perfect person to eulogize the Anaheim Ducks with snarky little cracks—after all, I’m a Vancouver Canucks fan, and clearly Canucks’ fans have no business trashing anyone these days.  But I can still enjoy their demise just a little bit (err… a lot) and Ducks fans can take heart by just reminding me how your guys dismantled my team a year ago, alrighty? Alright then.

read on and a great job by Alanah.  I just hope her next ‘obit’ is for another team west of the Mississippi!

Modry a Scratch for Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From CBC,

The Philadelphia Flyers will be without regular defenceman Jaroslav Modry Thursday night when they open their NHL Eastern Conference semifinal series in Montreal.

Modry will travel to the Czech Republic on Saturday for the burial of his father, Jaroslav Modry Sr., who died last week following a seven-month battle with colon cancer.

“The arrangements were set,” Flyers coach John Stevens said of Modry. “We’re going to make sure he has enough time to get back and take the time that he needs.  He’ll have plenty of time to pay his respects, and then take whatever time he needs to rejoin the team.”

continued… with our condolences

Some words on Modry from NHL.com’s Mike Morreale, written last week.
